Marcus Mariota tees up in Springfield to benefit Motiv8 Foundation
SPRINGFIELD, Ore. - Oregon football legend Marcus Mariota returned to town this week to help give back to the community.
The Heisman winner teed it up in the inaugural Motiv8 Foundation Golf tournament at Springfield Country Club on Monday.
With the foundation, it’s Mariota’s mission to provide care for youth in need “in any way” he can.
“We've done back-to-school backpacks. Showcases for young aspiring football players. We're still trying to find areas and ways that we can give back to the community,” Mariota said. “But Motiv8 wants to be a part of it, and we're thankful there are this many people out here to support us."
Mariota also has plans to reach out to the homeless community.
